Homework Builds Many Skills!

Happy New Year Northwood Community!

With the holidays now behind us, students here at NWS will begin participating in their mid-year NWEA (Northwest Evaluation Association) assessments early next week.  These exercises and activities help to provide insight to the learning paths of their academic journeys.  As such, parents often ask how they can assist their children in both growth and consistency when it comes to learning new concepts and reinforcing ideas that have already been introduced.  One critical way, as research has shown, is to be actively involved in encouraging and assisting in the homework completion process while children are at home.  The benefits of homework permeate many areas of development and go well beyond just academics and student growth!  In fact, consistent homework has been known to teach skills ranging from time management to increased self-esteem and confidence.  Check out this short, but fabulous article on more benefits and how you can help support your child and their growth!  Have a great weekend!

From the Library

The library is looking to restock its supply of makerspace/craft supplies, and will also be collaborating with the art class on some upcoming projects.

Please help us by sending in shoeboxes, toilet paper/paper towel tubes, old magazines, styrofoam pieces, egg cartons, fabric remnants, wallpaper/scrapbook paper, small recyclable plastic containers (rinsed out/cleaned please), and other small elements like plastic toys, Christmas ornaments, game pieces from discarded board games, etc.

Craft supplies like pipe cleaners and scrapbook paper are also welcome.

We like to offer our students a lot of options for STEM activities and creative projects and donations help us with this endeavor. Thank you!
